What We Treat
At Balance Houston Acupuncture Clinic, we believe that the ability to heal is innate. Nature has the power to prevent and treat illness, as well as to promote optimum health and well-being. Through the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we are able to connect the power of nature with people’s desire to live healthy and happy lives.
Chinese medicine benefits a vast majority of human conditions. At our clinic we specialize in using acupuncture, Chinese herbal prescriptions, cupping, moxibustion, and dietetics in the treatment of chronic and difficult conditions.
Pain is incredibly common, and is a leading cause for missed work and diminished quality of life. Some pain is acute, directly linked to a specific injury and of a limited duration. Other pain is chronic, severely limiting life activities for months or even years. Western medicine has long struggled to treat pain with a combination of harsh drugs and physical therapy, but has achieved only mixed results. In addition, some of the medications that showed the most promise in relieving pain have been pulled from the market due to their dangerous side effects. Fortunately, there is another solution.
Acupuncture has been a key component in Eastern medicine for thousands of years, and is gaining acceptance among Western physicians as well. Safe, effective, and painless, acupuncture is approved by both the NIH (National Institute of Health) and the WHO (World Health Organization) for many applications.
